Surface Pro 4 to Release in October?

I don’t normally post rumors. But for some reason, I feel comfortable to post this one. I have my reasons.

Okey, the report is from Digitime, a Tainwan based website. Their reports are usually considered rumors. You can’t be serious about what they say, but sometimes they know things that we don’t know. For two reasons, first, they are close to the upstream in supply chains, second is they are loose about rules and standards. They can be wrong at times, but they know things earlier than anyone else.

Any way, the report says,

the related upstream supply chain reportedly has recently been notified to start mass shipments of components in September with the tablet estimated to become available in the market in October, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

The new Surface tablet will feature the same ultra-thin form factor, bezel size and large-size display as the predecessor model and will come with Intel’s new Skylake processor and Windows 10.

Well, they didn’t say¬† the new tablet has to be Surface Pro 4, but it is safe to assume so.

There has been speculation that Surface Pro 4 won’t release this year. Paul Thurrott has said so, because he hasn’t get any information about Surface Pro 4. That can be true, but I just can’t find a reason for that, I can’t.
